I may just join you for this enterPAINment. I had to skip this due to surgery at the advice (smart I might add) of my coach.
What were the original days for this? I found that I did the first day in early January but I don’t think that was correct.
Sir Stuart @Critmark, Honorable DS:
I have loaded all of the stages on my calendar! As I am not a Knight, I do not have access to the vintage suffering that is the original Fight Club. Would you like to add a second vid to that stage since I will be riding the less-suffer-ful version? I do not know how the old compares to the new, so I am not sure what is needed to bring the stage up to par.
Gotta maintain the integrity! (In truth, I’m just avoiding being found out and sent to a flogging station!)
@guilloma Joanna do you have access to the Original Blender? Here are the differences in the two rides in question.
Original Blender: Time = 2:13:10, TSS = 159, IF = 0.85
Blender: Time = 1:41:47, TSS = 120, IF = 0.84
Fight Club (Vintage Sufferfest): Time = 0:59:07, TSS = 78, IF = 0.89
Fight Club: Time = 0:55:38, TSS = 64, IF = 0.83
As you can see, Original Blender is much longer with a higher TSS as a result. Fight Club is just dialed back from the original. Please let me know about your access to Original Blender and I will, as DS for this vintage challenge, assign an adjustment.
As for the mercy requested by Sir Glen, I would give it much more consideration if he were participating!
@jmckenzieKOS curious as to why the Original Blender is not the correct ride for 2015. As a Knight, if you go to the cycling Library and search for Blender you will get three results: Blender, Blender (Mini Version) and Original Blender.
The list of rides for that ToS just says Blender however, there would have been no reason to label it Original in 2015 if it was the only version at the time. Perhaps I should reach out to the minions to see if I can get any insight as to the release date for both.
